Goods and Services Tax (GST) is the BEST tool in government’s hand to increase revenue so they can spend more on people’s need. I beg to differ to this idea and these are the 3 reasons why we should continue with income tax that is far better and practical for Malaysia and Malaysians:


1.       http://precisepg.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/gst-for-the-masses_1_540_875_100.jpgIncome tax is a Progressive tax.

Basic principle of income tax is where people with more income pay a higher percentage of that income in tax than to those with less income. Progressive taxation is often suggested as a way to mitigate the societal ills associated with higher income inequality as the tax structure increases equality, Progressive taxation has also been positively associated with the subjective well-being of nations and citizen's satisfaction with public goods, such as education and transportation.


In simple words, it is a fair proportion tax system. In Malaysian context, taxable individuals are 20% of the population whom 10% of the richest owns 38.4% of the country’s wealth.  Remaining majority is not tax eligible whom mainly our workforce. GST on other hand is a regressive tax and will affect almost 80% of the population.  The info graphic above shows crystal clear how unfair GST is to the poor.

OPEN LETTER TO Yang Di PertuanAgong Abdul Halim Mu'adzamShah on the Goods and Services Tax

OPEN LETTER TO Yang Di Pertuan Agong Abdul Halim Mu’adzamShah on the Goods and Services Tax

Your Majesty, in your opening speech in the Parliament , Your Majesty  urged the Members of Parliament to tell the people in the ground the benefits of the Goods and Services Tax.


Your Majesty ,please allow me , the normal Rakyat to humbly present my views on why we are opposed to the Goods and Services Tax which will make Malaysians poorer rather than benefit anyone except the rich.


Your Majesty, My humble first point is: GST TAX will make all Malaysians, whether poor or rich, young or old, students and unemployed to pay tax. This is against the concept of tax  as in economics the concept of tax, is those who have a surplus income or wealth , pay tax so that the government can provide basic services with low charge or no charge at all for all including the poor. Tax is also used to help the poor by having social programmes to uplift their income and standard of living. This tax is equivalent to the zakat the Muslims pay, that is a must in Islam where the rich person will pay zakat so that the surplus wealth is redistributed to the poor. Thus the concept of everyone paying tax through the GST Tax is not a fair tax system where Malaysia is a country where 80% of the population are not in the category of paying tax. So how can the Malaysian government implement a tax system which will oppress the low income and poor and also it is un-Islamic to collect tax from the poor.  Thus the implementation of the GST TAX must be halted Your Majesty.

Time To Review Land Acquisition Act

Joint Press Release (Jaringan Rakyat Tertindas & Malaysians for Beng Hock) -

Time To Review Land Acquisition Act


Time To Review Land Acquisition Act



We condemn the arrest of a Pengerang villager during a grave counting exercise in Pengerang, carried out by contractors under the guard of polices on 24th February 2014. Police, by all means, should immediately drop charge of obstruction against the youth.


The young villager was simply exercising lawful rights of peaceful assembly, questioning the moving and destruction of the graves. Decision for relocation of graves was brought in front of court for judicial review and the process is underway. Therefore, grave counting exercise was clearly an intrusion and contempt of court.
